    • I am not able to repro this.  Does this happen on most pages or a specific page?  Can you give me an example URL where this is happening?

      Appreciate the support,

    • After rebooting my machine it appears i can no longer repro it. However when i did have it a few days ago i added it to the feedback hub with the capture logs. So you should be able to get some data from that. https://aka.ms/Jur1v3

    • I thought I had responded.  Sorry about that.

      Thank you for letting us know and for uploading the capture logs to the feedback hub.  That data is useful to us.

      Thanks again for the support and this submission,

    • Could be a different issue, but I am seeing this (or very similar) issue today.

      To repro, download this zip which has the .html and supporting files (sorry there is JS, it’s a SPA):

      The download link expires in a week, so grab it before then.

      REPRO steps:

      • Open the solids.html file
      • Scroll the page down
      • Note: there is a rendering issue with the toolbar which is not present in other browsers
      • Right-click the toolbar at the top and choose inspect element
      • Dev tools opens on a ‘header’ element. Below this element is a div.
      • Click the div
      • Observe: Dev tools crashes.
